An alleged drunk driver strikes, kills a Santa Clarita Valley mom

On Behalf of | Oct 23, 2017 | Fatal Motor Vehicle Accidents |

An Oct. 6 drunk driving crash claimed the life of a young mother from Saugus. The crash occurred around 11:48 p.m., as the 37-year-old drove home from visiting her twin preemies in the neonatal intensive care unit at an area hospital.

The woman, who was mother to six kids, was driving along Golden Valley Road, fast approaching Valley Center Road immediately prior to the crash. At that same time, there was a 22-year-old, driving in the opposite direction along Golden Valley Road.

That young woman reportedly lost control of her car after colliding with a curb. It’s then that the woman’s car grazed the side of one vehicle before entering into oncoming traffic. The new mom’s car was struck head-on by the 22-year-old woman’s car.

The young mother reportedly suffered blunt force injuries in the crash. She had already expired by the time Los Angeles county paramedics arrived on the scene.

As for the 22-year-old, she was transported by ambulance to an area hospital for treatment for undisclosed injuries.

In investigating the crash, police found various open alcohol containers in her vehicle. It’s believed that she may have been intoxicated at the time of the crash.

Police are awaiting final toxicology results before pressing any charges against her. A spokesperson for the Santa Clarita Valley Police Department has noted that she will face vehicular manslaughter charges if toxicology results reflect that she was drunk at the time of the crash.

When a loved one dies in a car crash, especially if he or she is a parent of minor children, he or she often leaves behind family that don’t just grieve their loss, but that have to find a way to make ends meet financially as well. A Los Angeles motor vehicle accident attorney can advise you of your rights to recover funeral expenses, lost wages and more in your case.
